Hearing held for Social Security explosion suspect

PHOENIX -

A man accused of detonating an explosive device outside a federal building in Casa Grande was back in court Wednesday.

A judge ruled the Coolidge man is a flight risk and a danger and ordered him to stay behind bars.

The judge made the ruling in a brief hearing at the federal building behind me Wednesday afternoon. He said the suspect will remain in custody at least until his hearing next week.

This court appearance was different than Monday's in the fact that the suspect was actually talking.

Abdullatif Aldosary was seen shaking his head, looking down and talking with his court appointed defense attorney before the hearing.

It's not known what he said as his attorney would not talk with reporters afterwards. But she seems to be making progress with the 47-year old suspect.

In Monday's court hearing, the Iraqi refugee stood silent in court, refusing to answer the judge's questions or talk with his attorney.

Aldosary is accused of detonating a homemade explosive device at the rear entrance of the social security administration building in Casa Grande Friday.

It also houses the Arizona Department of Economic Security, which helps the unemployed and those in need. No one was injured in the blast.

According to a criminal complaint, a witness saw Aldosary's car speeding away from the explosion. Investigators arrested Aldosary at his home that afternoon.

Behind a photo frame in his house, investigators say they found information about how to make a high grade military explosive that investigators say is used in terrorist bomb plots.

They say he had chemicals that could be used to make bombs.

Investigators haven't revealed a motive, but court records show Aldosary never got money from DES. We don't know if he ever applied for benefits.

His neighbor says he often worked day jobs -- court records shows he has $20,000 in his bank account.

Aldosary is set for a preliminary hearing next Tuesday.
